We’ve just entered The McGladrey Classic’s favorite month!

It’s been a whirlwind of a week for Team McGladrey members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III. Both of them left their hearts on the course at the Ryder Cup, and while we were hoping that Team USA would bring home the trophy, we’d like to congratulate Team Europe for their win.

With the 2012 McGladrey Classic only 10 days away, Zach and Davis are gearing up to welcome golf fans to their beautiful home of Sea Island. Davis serves as tournament chairman and host. He and Zach will be joined by fellow Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco and other professional golfers for the third annual McGladrey Classic (Oct. 15 – 21). Earlier this week, Davis spoke with Golfer’s Guide about the Heritage at Hilton Head Island and The McGladrey Classic. It’s a great article that highlights two stellar Southern courses. Check it out here.

On Mon., Oct. 1, we had a special guest take over our social media pages – Jonathan Byrd! He answered many questions that were submitted by fans. If you missed it, it’s not too late, you can check out his responses on The McGladrey Classic Facebook page.

The McGladrey Classic isn’t the only golf event we like to talk about on this blog! On Sept. 25, our Rockford, IL office held its second annual Golf Skills Experience event. Much like The McGladrey Classic teams up with Special Olympics, the Golf Skills Experience is also linked to Special Olympics, with proceeds benefitting the nonprofit’s Illinois chapter. The Experience allows Special Olympic athletes to practice the skills necessary to compete in the Special Olympics’ golf competition. McGladrey takes pride in giving back to our communities so we are glad to see the great turnout for the event, which will continue to be an annual event.

Again, The McGladrey Classic is only 10 short days away! If you haven’t already done so, mark your calendars NOW with all the events that will be taking place throughout the tournament so that you won’t miss anything. You can find the 2012 Schedule of Events and purchase tickets on the McGladrey Classic website.

Check back in next week as we provide our last blog post before heading down to Sea Island! And be sure to check in daily during tournament week for updates on all the events!
